Year 4 DT week

Last week was DT week and in Year 4 our topic was ‘Moving vehicles – using wheels and axles’. We started the week by researching different items that use wheels and axles and we learnt about the science behind them to discover how they work as a pair. We designed our ideas and worked together to plan the steps that we’d need to take to make our vehicle, before getting stuck in to the making process. Everyone worked extremely hard on their project and the end results were fantastic, with lots of creative ideas. Once our vehicles were made we did an evaluation of the the process – whether we had met the design brief, what went well during our project and what we could improve on next time. We all had a great week. Here are some photos of us working throughout the week.
